Welcome to Script Sales. Here's where you'll be able to hear about new projects just bought, pitched or greenlit. Now you can know what's going on years before the movies hit the theaters....
- Paramount Pictures bought the rights to Mailman, written by Wrestling Earnest Hemingway screenwriter Steven Conrad, adapted from J. Robert Lennon's novel, Mailman: A Novel.
A letter carrier extraordinaire who is aggressively cheerful and
obsessively efficient has a penchant for reading other people's
mail. When one of his customers ends up dead, and he is holding
the letter that might have saved the person's life, he sets out on a
cross-country odyssey to reconcile with his own family and make meaning
out of his own life. The rights to the novel were acquired in November
2003. This one certainly sounds interesting.
